Become An LEP Tutor

Tutoring opportunities at LEP are variable, as tutors are hired based on the needs of our student population. If we don't have any open positions at the time of your inquiry, we'll add you to our prospective tutor list to contact you in the future if anything does open up. (This can happen quite suddenly).

We prefer that tutors have obtained or are at least pursuing a degree beyond their undergraduate. We don't hire undergraduates except in cases of dire need or other exceptional circumstances.

The LEP is designed to provide academic support to DU students with learning disabilities, ADHD, or notable learning differences. In light of this, our tutors have to bring more to the table than simply being well versed in their subject areas. Generally undergraduates aren't prepared to meet these standards despite excelling in the subject they would like to tutor.
